The Brazil international would likely do well to move to Lazio and enjoy the chance to play more regularly, as well as perhaps benefiting from the slower pace of the game in Serie A.
Pereira looks to have plenty of talent but just hasn’t quite looked sharp enough to do it consistently at Premier League level, though that needn’t stop him having a fine career.
It will be interesting to see what kind of role Pereira gets at Lazio, but there could be room for him to take up a key position as Sergej Milinkovic-Savic could be set for a transfer to Juventus.
